    Is anyone else having problems with transferring from their iPhone to iPad with iMessage? I will be in the middle of a conversation and move to my iPad from my iPhone and a new thread will start with the person I am talking to. I know on the iPhone it uses your phone number as the default and your email address for iPad, but I wold like to just use the email address instead.

    Anyone else having this problem?

    You need to insure that the Caller ID on both the iPad and iPhone is set to your Apple ID. Most issues are with the phone being set to the phone number and not the Apple ID

    Hmm. I think iMassage doesnot work with CDMA. because it requires Wifi or 3G ...

    Lol, i found it annoying that having a convo on my ipad would send everything to my iphone aswel, so ive set up a seperate email for my ipad now.

    There are a few threads about this. I've got the caller ID set up and it still does not always work properly. And it has nothing to do with CDMA. It seems buggy playing between devices for the same user.

    Wow, I didn't think that many people were having problems.

    Hopefully they have a work around because asking for someone's Apple ID to prevent this is just stupid.
